Question
Posted by: Anonymous | 2009/05/05

Puberty @ 7???

My seven year old has started getting pubic hair!!! Her nipples are also starting to swell. Is this NORMAL???? And if so, when can we expect her to start menstruating? Shame, she' s only 7 and in Grade 1!!!

Also, I am 35 and currently on Triphasil. Is this ok for my age or which other birth control pill should I consider.

Thanks!

This is a bit early for puberty. I would suggest that you take her to see a doctor.
As long as you do not smoke and have to risks for heart disease, you can take the Pill.
